I never lost a sock in Second Life

27 03 2009

It happens to me in RL all in a while.

A sock vanishes to somewhere in a rift in time and space.sock231

While investigating my most recent loss in this regard (if you see
a black sock with a red “WALK!” written on the side on a rampage : email me)
I wiggled out the fact, that I never happened to loose a sock in Second Life.

I have lost many things:

– Some paintings through asset server issues.
– Some building designs by sheer stupidity.
– Lots of L$ when the bank ban broke loose a stampede.
– Minor stuff from my inventory.

But miraculously, I never lost one of my three pairs of socks.

I would either claim the reason behind this to be pure logic or
the to the limits of simulation.

Pure logic would demand that you can not loose single socks where
in SL they always come in pairs. I accept that this has its points, at least unless I interrogated people who use prim socks and testify that they lost one of those.

The more appealing reason is simulation limits:
LL did manage to create a world if not even a galaxy where nearly everything is possible. Flight, creation, love, game, communication.

But they did not manage to create the same “background-galaxies” that RL offers.
In this case, they did not manage to create the sock-galaxy, where socks could go to when they are lost.

So with no place to go… they stay.

Now if anyone opens a sim dedicated to socks only, I bet a L§ for a hundred LL-Pinetrees, it would be packed within seconds and crash due to millions of socks, which have now have found their escape-spot.
